This extremely topical Breakfast Club will firstly consider the key changes to the BRC Global Standard For Food Safety. In the past 4 years since the issue of version 6, there have been some key areas of focus on the industry. The horsemeat contamination challenges of 2013, highlighted the risks of adulteration in the supply chain. Within the subsequent Elliot report in 2014 eight recommendations were made, and Issue 7 has included a number of these. The recent FSA annual report on food recalls identified food labelling as the main cause. All audits commencing before 1st July 2015 will be to Issue 6, with those commencing after 1st July 2015 to the new issue. This is the ideal forum to understand and explore more about this subject area with an expert in the field. It provides delegates with excellent opportunities to discuss in detail their requirements, concerns and raise questions on the subject matter with the speakers.
